NH Children’s Behavioral Health Collaborative

The Collaborative represents the largest ever collaboration of New Hampshire child and family organizations and agencies-more than 50-focused on mental health and substance use disorders for children, youth and families. The goal of the Collaborative was to develop and implement a plan that would transform the current delivery system.

The FAST Forward program –Families and Systems Together– is designed to serve youth with serious emotional disturbances and their families, whose needs aren’t met by traditional service streams and programs.

Referrals are being accepted from families and providers for children and youth who…

♦ Are Medicaid eligible

♦ Are aged six or who are young adults transitioning out of school, foster care, or state placements

♦ Experience difficulties in day-to-day life due to a diagnosis of serious emotional disturbance

♦ Are at risk of multi-agency involvement (includes out of home placement in a residential treatment facility, psychiatric hospital, or juvenile justice facility)

For more information please contact Adele C. Gallant or call 603-271-4371.
